Printing probs with top & bottom Avery 8692 labels

Question

Man, I've gone through so much paper already I can't do this anymore. I use the Print/Preferences/Fine tuning and have tried 100s of combinations. Can you tell me how to move the printing left horizontally, is that a negative horizontal ex. -0.25? Or is it a positive 0.25?

 

Same with the verticle adjustment. What number do I use to move the printing UP, positive or a negative number. Can't seem to get a handle on it.

 

My problem seem like I can't hold the alignment. Seems to keep moving.

Yup, I've done the calibration routine.

 

Please help, or I'll have to switch to Avery DesignPro software that came with the box. However, I'm committed to sticking with EMC8 because it's so well inclusive.

Thanks.

Negative numbers are to the left and down

 

What I usually did with unbranded generic paper was to use an ordinary sheet of standard paper, print to that and then hold it behind a used sheet of label and look through the backing to see where it lined up and adjusted accordingly

Agreed... a good way to save the expensive stuff.

 

One other point, if your alignment seems to be wandering, it may simply be the feed mechanism on your printer. Some are better than others.

Thanks. Good idea.

It seems I asked the wrong question under this title.

My question for this is the print dialog shows only the top cd label and the bottom one is grayed out. For the life of me I cannot copy and paste to that bottom one. I had a bright idea I thought but you can't rotate the form and print again because it will be 1/4" off then. I'd sure like an idea on this.

WHOA, I just read the post by bvor "Label creator won't let me choose which label on sheet I want to print on" and then sknis gave a download solution. Wow, that fixed the problem. Boy, do I love this forum bit.
